I always hate trying anything skincare related. Every time I do I normally break out from what ever I put on my face. Shaving cream, cleanser, toners, masks, 2 Minute Miracle Gel, etc,.. I have tried so many different products that people say I wont have any issues with but I end up breaking out. So far with the Elier Organic line I’m having better luck.
When I first hear about the Elier Mud Mask and the product line I was turned off by it because It’s being marketed through an MLM (multi Level Marketing) channel. Based on my past experience GOOD and BAD with MLM I almost didn’t even try it. Why? Because more than likely I was going to be able to find the same exact product at Target or in the Mall. A lot of MLM companies go to a vendor and white label a product that has already been out and they label it with a new brand and logo and say it’s the newest and greatest thing and only available through us. Well, not in this case! I did my homework.
Why Should I Even Care About A Mud Mask?
The Elier Mud Mask states it is suitable for every skin type which is another claim I am a little suspicious of since different skins do require different treatments. I dated an Esthetician for 6 years so I picked up a few things and learned that some skin types products work really well for and some it does the opposite.
One of the main reasons I decided to try it is because I’m now 40 years old. I look around and I see woman taking such great care of their skin and look amazing. Then I look around at guys and holy cow, even guys in the 30 years old range look way older than they really are. Yes when you are young you want to look older but that goes away pretty fast! 🙂 After seeing this and taking note that I’m starting to show the signs of aging, I want to take better care of my skin. I have to hand it to you ladies, you look amazing!
What’s In The Elier Mud Mask?
What’s in it?
Peloid Complex – is a balance of active components of highly organic mud (Elier). It’s the world’s only unique deep-action highly organic complex, which enters in the deepest tissues of the body and provides a complex action on all important functions of the skin. Thanks to the 5-stage extraction technologies, it is possible to extract highly organic substances – minerals (Cu, Ni, Mg, Mo, Ba), ferments, peptides, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, microelements, natural antibiotics and antioxidants, which, acting on the deepest tissue layers, strengthen the immune system of the organism, contribute to proper functioning of the organism, remove toxins and act as a strong anti-oxidants.

I got one mask out of the sachet. The mask is very dark! I was not expecting that. When I put it on the girl friend came down stairs and was like “What are you doing”?
I have seen other reviews on this product and people say there is no smell. It has a smell of mud if that makes sense? My skin did have a tingle feeling. Im pretty sure that was just from the mud drying on my face. My skin is very sensitive and 24 hours later still no sign of a break out.
The mask dries quickly and is surprisingly easy to wash off (I used a soft washcloth), leaving no mess or muddy streaks. My skin was surprisingly soft and smooth afterwards even with a 5 O’clock shadow.
How to use it?
I have seen many different ways people are using this mask and I decided I would share them with you.
For you guys that actually read this far, I’m pretty sure you don’t care to much about skincare products. If that’s the case I urge you to really look around. You ARE going to get older and what you do now will make an impact on you when you are 30, 40,50 or 60 years old. My advice, START NOW!!!
